Last night I revealed the not-so-shocking news that I’m a dumbass. The latest proof came in the form of a crashed MacBook hard drive and a missing 28,000 word manuscript that I failed to save to the cloud.
Well, after clicking through hundreds of recovered .doc files on an external drive, I am very happy to report that 25k of the missing 28k manuscript have been recovered. I know as well as you do that the missing 3k was some of the best writing that I’ll ever do, and many of us will probably shed tears and lose sleep over what has been lost, but I have to say—I am thrilled and relieved.
Thanks to all the well-wishers.
Back your files up.
